The Intercultural Learning in the Digital Age international conference will discuss and discover insights into how educational the theories and practices are driving, responding to and facilitating intercultural communication and learning in the current age. How are our educational systems changing in our current context of liquid modernity (Bauman, 2007), globalisation and massive migratory movements across the globe? How are educators responding to the constant mobility and changes in relationships and identities within our highly complex societies? How can we cross global boundaries while promoting mutual understanding and critical values in the classroom?  What will education and teaching be like once normalisation (Bax, 2002) of ICTs has been fully achieved? How will this digital immersion transform the ways and environments in which intercultural communication and learning take place?
